esperanto_congressThe World Esperanto Congress will take place at Harpa concert and conference center in Reykjavík tomorrow.

Around 1,000 people are expected to attend the event, which runs until July 27.

Secretary of the Icelandic Esperanto Association, Loftur Melberg Sigurjónsson, told mbl.is that this is a similar number of attendees to recent years. “Esperanto speakers from all over the world will come together to speak Esperanto,” he said.

The congress was previously held in Iceland in 1977.

Esperanto is reportedly the most widely spoken constructed international auxiliary language.
